The 4th Sophia-Sogang Festival of Exchange SOFEX 2013 will be held from November 14 till 16 at Sophia University. SOFEX is a two university event held annually by Sophia University and Sogang University that share the tradition of institutions established by the Society of Jesus. Both schools take turns every other year to provide event venues on their campuses. This year we are expecting about 140 students from Sogang to visit Sophia to participate in SOFEX 2013.

There will be a campus tour, opening ceremony, Men's basketball as the opening game of SOFEX 2013 , and welcoming dinner party scheduled to take place on the 14th. Sophia and Sogang soccer teams will compete in the tournament on the 15th. Here you can see cheer squad performances of both schools and hear their chants and yells. There will be something new for this year’s SOFEX! Why not enjoy a joint Sophia-Sogang martial arts demonstration of Shorinji Kempo, Karate, and Taekwondo.

For cultural exchange, you can’t miss a joint concert by rock bands, Sophia Soukyoku Club, and especially the music of Samul nori played by four traditional Korean musical instruments, Kkwaenggwari, Jing, Janggu and Buk. By the way, Sophia-Sogang magic show is also worth looking into!
